Detunized Make Ableton Live Pack “Rolfing 3” From Rotten Piano

You might steer clear of rotten food, but we'd recommend you check out the Live pack made using a rotten piano. Some atmospheric, haunting, beautiful. Whatever you create with it, it's unique.  

Rolfing 3 continues a series of Live Packs that source their material from a totally rotten piano. Volume 3 approaches the piano frame at its current place: a suburb garden area.

Since 2009, when the recording sessions for Volume 1 & 2 took place, the piano was exposed to weather nearly unprotected. The laquer got brittle and the strings are covered with rust and dirt. Nevertheless, these piano remains still emit a wonderfull and reverberant sound.

The sounds for Rolfing 3 were recorded chromatically, with an advanced setup of acoustic stereo mics and two pairs of piezo pickups. All samples have been edited by hand to form a comprehensive palette of versatile Ableton Instrument Racks. Inspired by the acoustic field surroundings during the nightly recording sessions a set of independently adjustable nature ambiences was integrated into the Racks. Additionaly, all ambience sounds are contained as separate clips to use in different context if desired.
In a second pass the entire piano was treated by a Jazz Brush. Scraping and hitting the strings and body revealed tons of interesting sounds at the borderline between tonal and acousmatic. These sounds are compiled to 12 additional Instrument Racks.
